Market Report November 2021

Market Update

As we head towards Christmas, the Sydney property market is showing no signs of slowing with strong buyer demand and low interest rates driving demand resulting in high auction clearance rates.

The end of lockdown has also added an element of confidence to the market with CoreLogic data showing that for the 12 months to September 30, Sydney house prices jumped 28.9%.

Apartment prices rose 11.6% during the same period with experts believing the lower rate of increase was mainly due to COVID-19 related issues such as a lack of overseas immigration and international students.

However, they feel the situation will change with the re-opening of Australia’s border and the easing of COVID-19 concerns.

Louis Christopher, founder of SQM Research also believes affordability issues will also drive up apartment prices as those who were keen to buy a house turn their attention to apartments instead.

Analysts will also be watching how APRA’s new regulations effect the market. Banks will now have to assess whether borrowers could meet their loan repayments if interest rates rose 3% above their mortgage rate. This is expected to reduce new customers borrowing capacity by about 5%.
